LOS ANGELES (AP) - Ted Nugent says he is insulted by the cancellation of his planned concert at an Army base over his comments about President Obama.
Commanders at the Fort Knox base in Kentucky nixed Nugent's segment of a June concert after the rocker and conservative activist said at a recent National Rifle Association meeting that he would be dead or in jail by this time next year if Obama is re-elected.
Nugent told The Associated Press his words were not intended as a threat against the president.
Nugent said he had received messages of support from troops and
noted that the Secret Service had met with him and closed its case
about the remarks earlier this month.
